    Note: Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse and the Disney Princesses can now be found for meet and greets in new Town Square Theater, featuring FASTPASS.

    Tinker Bell and friends can now be found in Epcot, at the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden near MouseGear.

    Enchanted Tiki Room Under New Management closed since January 13, due to a fire. Expected to reopen with its original, classic show on August 16.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Thanks to Robert for setting me on the trail, it seems that Littlemismatch has or is moving to the Marketplace beside Fun Finds - I think it is the old $10 and under space
